I want to know about Molar pregnancy ?

MD, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If any one is suffering from it it should be immediately terminated as it may turn into cancer if not treated. Also she needs some injections after D&C with methotrexate to prevent cancer formation. Also beta-hcg levels need to be checked almost every week till it comes negative. Please consider this message as urgent if u have not already decided on procedure

Eating under stress of doing a night job? eat apple as a snack instead of yummy burger, green tea / some cups of coffee with little milk but no sugar, avoid sugars and fats, take your own tiffins of assorted fruits and salads, roasted chane can be eaten to give you proteins along with some nuts as they are filling and one does not feel hungry for hours after eating a katori. Same holds true about a boiled egg per day/ night if you are an egg eater, remember only 1 egg / day. When you come back from work, you require 8 hours of sleep and may be that leaves little time to exercise, you have to be disciplined to put in an extra hour for simple exercises that rejuvinate you but not tire you to face another hard day or a night on the job. You should reduce only about 10 kgs in 3 months and maintain it at around 53 kg for a height 5'1' crash dieting is harmful.

Sex during pregnancy is considered safe unless you are asked by your gynecologist to avoid sex completely due to some or the other unavoidable reasons. Sex with or without condoms has no effect on ongoing pregnancy.

I am 23 year old and married I have been doing sex from six month continuously but no pregnancy. Please help.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
I  am 23 year old and married I have been doing sex from six month continuously but no pregnancy. Please help.
Please note that getting pregnant sometimes becomes herculean task. It is strange that people who do not want it, it is there biggest fear. However months of time is not a time period to get really worried. Maybe you're just really eager to get pregnant: please note that you can not predict a time frame and sometimes it takes time to conceive. Have patience and here are some tips which can help: tip #1: the biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. If you notice that you have irregular periods over the course of several months, pinpointing ovulation could be difficult. Ask your doctor for advice. Tip #2: once you know when your egg will be released from your ovary, you can plan to have sex during your most fertile days: from three days before ovulation through the day of ovulation. (starting a little sooner can't hurt; some women have gotten pregnant from sex that happened six days before they ovulated.) if you have a regular cycle of 28 days, days 12 to 16 days are said to be a woman's most fertile period counting from the first day of cycle. Tip #3: sperm have their best shot at fertilizing an egg when they're healthy, strong, and plentiful. Several things can help your partner get his sperm supply in fighting shape: - cut back on alcohol (studies show that drinking daily can reduce testosterone levels and sperm counts and raise the number of abnormal sperm) - quit tobacco and recreational drugs (these can cause poor sperm function) - eat enough of certain key nutrients? like zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins c and d? that help create plentiful, strong, wiggly sperm - avoid hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths, since heat kills sperm.

6 Ways How Alcohol Abuse Can Ruin Your Relationship

MD - General Medicine

6 Ways How Alcohol Abuse Can Ruin Your Relationship

You may think that it is just a harmless drink or two at the end of the day to help you relax. it's just a few drinks when you get together with friends. or it's just that you need to get rid of the office stress. We all need to catch a break sometimes, which makes our favorite brand of drink our best friend. Trouble starts when 'a drink or two' moves to a level where you can't hold the drink anymore. It affects your ability to think straight and take decisions that you may regret in retrospect. Alcoholism not only has serious health consequences but also can ruin your life and relationships. Don't tread down the path of self destruction, or this is what you'll find:

  1. Conflict: It is not a coincidence that fights are common when one or both partners are caught up with alcohol abuse. It is said that if there is too much alcohol in your system, it hampers with your ability to make rational decisions. It allows you to become inconsiderate about others, and give more importance your addiction over their requirements. It, to an extent, numbs you to what others feel, and makes you drink even more.
  2. Financial loss: Alcohol costs money. And the more you spend to keep up with your addiction, the more money flows out of your monthly household expenses, monthly savings and retirement plans. And this money literally goes down the drain. Like any other addiction, once you start alcohol abuse, you need it everyday. Drinking may go on to impact your ability to hold on to your job as no one will eventually want to hire someone who has alcohol on their breath at 9 am during client meetings. Alcohol is a strict restriction in certain professions where you may put other people at risk. At the very best, you'll be left with a warning. At the worst, you'll lose your job and end up with no work and no money to support your addiction.
  3. Accident prone: In 2014, 9,967 people died in drunk driving crashes - one every 53 minutes. This may sound only like a statistic to you - until you speak to the families who lost their loved ones or have to see them suffer through loss of limbs or brain function to bear lifelong suffering. And as far as you are concerned, you may end up seeing the wrong end of a prison. Such things have a profound impact on your relationship - many of which fail to last through the ordeal.
  4. Infidelity: You've seen it a thousand times in movies - which actually might get reflected in reality, if you wake up next to someone whose name you don't know.
  5. Infertility: Alcohols and babies don't mix. Too much alcohol intake can stop women from making and keeping a baby.
  6. Divorce: An alcoholic husband or wife is a valid ground of mental trauma applicable in a divorce.

When is the best time to have sex with my girlfriend ? Can we have during her periods?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
When is the best time to have sex with my girlfriend ? Can we have during her periods?
No, Day 1 to day 7 and day 21 to rest of the cycle are known to be “safe days” or your “safe period”. The method is perfect only for women whose menstrual cycles are regular, i.e. 25 to 32 days cycles. This method is not completely reliable.

What Causes a Uterine Prolapse?

FICMCH, Diploma In Laproscopic Surgery, Certified in Laparoscopy & Hysteroscopy, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
Gynaecologist, Gurgaon
What Causes a Uterine Prolapse?

The uterus is a muscular structure held in place inside your pelvis with the help of muscles, ligaments, and tissues. These muscles weaken in women due to pregnancy, childbirth or delivery complications and can lead to severe complications. One such complication is a uterine prolapse. Uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus sags or slips from its normal position into the vaginal canal.

The causes of uterine prolapse are varied and include:

- Delivering a large baby
- Pregnancy
- Difficulty in labor and delivery
- Reduction in estrogen levels post menopause
- Traumatic childbirth
- Loss or weakening of the pelvic muscle
- Conditions which lead to increased pressure in the abdominal area such as a chronic cough, straining, pelvic tumors or accumulation of fluid in the abdomen
- Loss of external support due to major surgery in pelvic area

Uterine prolapse can be complete or incomplete depending on how far the uterus sags into the vagina. Women who have minor uterine prolapse may not have any visible symptoms. However, if the condition worsens, it manifests itself in visible signs.

Symptoms of moderate or severe prolapse are:

1. A feeling of fullness or pressure in your pelvis when you sit
2. Seeing the uterus or cervix coming out of the vagina
3. Vaginal bleeding or increased discharge
4. Painful sexual intercourse
5. Recurrent bladder infections
6. Continuing back pain with difficulty in walking, urinating and moving your bowels

Without proper attention, the condition can cause impairments in the bowel, and can also affect bladder and sexual function.

I have a sex with my boyfriend without protection. He said we have done it only 50 % what does that means. And my time is shifted 1 week. So is it safe.

CCEBDM, PG Diploma In Clinical cardiology, MBBS

50 % sex does not mean any thing and is not relevant, if your date is delayed by 7 days get your urine tested for pregnancy, there are kits available at chemist shop and you can do it your self at home. Do it urgently donot delay.
